The homeless outreach team hit the streets of Augusta for the fourth day of a six day mission. Their six-day mission: survey the city’s exploding homeless population to identify needs and gaps in service.
Raw sewage leaks, holes in the ceiling where smoke detectors should be, no hot water, or air, and bath tubs that back up with other tenants used water. Our I-Team found hundreds of violations in some cases, more than a decade of documented problems for some of Augusta’s biggest nuisance properties.
Ever since the beginning of COVID we heard a lot about air filtration. In addition to upgrading mask requirements on school buses, the I-Team found Columbia County appears to have made the most changes to their air filtration on buses and in the classroom.
